Research Perch Podcast

Massage Therapy Foundation’s Research Perch podcast is designed to help massage therapists put research into practice. Each episode discusses a specific article, modality, or research subject and unpacks it so you know how it applies to you. Many of the articles discussed originate from the MTF’s open-access, peer-reviewed journal, the International Journal of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (IJTMB). Grow your massage therapy practice and serve your clients better with the power of research!

What do listeners have to say about it?

“I love Research Perch! This podcast breaks down research topics into easily understandable information that is instantly applicable to my hands-on massage practice. It’s often great info to share with clients and inspiring to see how accessible research really is.” – Allissa Haines, LMT

“I am new to podcasts, but have been an MT for 15 years, I can’t tell you how insightful I have been finding the Research Perch podcast to be; I just can’t get enough. The hosts are inquisitive and discuss the topics with little bias and are overt when disclosing opinions. Please add more episodes! I am learning so much, and I strongly feel these conversations are essential.” – Leah Porvaznik, LMT
